Now this is the second work of yours that I have properly given a look and like before I am amazed. This work has this strange texture and patterns that makes it feel random yet the various patterns fit so well that it could not be random! I don't know what resides in your mind when making this, but it just feels right.

The technique is amazing and the clarity, shading and the smoothness of different textures/shapes is also well handled. I feel that you do not work on it after the scanning with which I am fine... it gives the work an over all raw feel.

Now its relevance to the title. I say there is a lot of relevance. It does look like a time machine with the cage like door and the pipe work extending from its room that coils... and then there is the typical steam outlet in the top right of the work... so the title is also justified. Over all a great work!
What do you think?

I came to thank you for fav'ing my wolf speed paint, but got distracted by your sketchbook. I love these lines! I try making works like these in my sketchbooks every now and then, and I know it's not always easy to make each component of the piece pop individually. Yours is especially detailed and you can clearly see the depth! Love it!

yes that was what I thought .. I was going to call the piece just "Time Machine" .. but I kept seeing a Mayan Glyph too .. hence the name addition

I didnt base it on a glyph (actually started out as a fairy house) .. but when I was finished it had the Feel of a Mayan Glyph ..
